BMI Calculator

(This assignment was suggested by Joel H in 2012.)

The body mass index (BMI) is commonly used by health and nutrition professionals to estimate human body fat in populations.

It is computed by taking the individual's weight (mass) in kilograms and dividing it by the square of their height in meters.
